Too fast, too furious—and way too hot to handle…
Mackenzie Cox has a lot to prove. Daughter of a racing legend, she is eager to show the world that she has inherited her father’s talent in the male-dominated sport of professional motorcycle racing. The last thing Kenzie needs is to be antagonized by her rival team’s newest rider, Hayden Hayes. Plucked from the world of illegal street racing, Hayden immediately gets under Kenzie’s skin. His insinuations that Kenzie is a spoiled princess who was handed her career fuels her desire to win, and much to her surprise, Kenzie soon learns she performs better when she’s racing against Hayden.
As Kenzie and Hayden push each other on the track, the electric energy between them off the track shifts into an intense—and strictly forbidden—attraction. The only rule between their two ultra-competitive teams is zero contact. Kenzie always does her best to play by the rules, but when her team slips into a financial crisis, she has no choice but to turn to Hayden for help. The tension simmers during their secret, late-night rendezvous, but Kenzie has too much to lose to give in to her desires. Especially when she begins to doubt that Hayden has completely left his street life behind…

Pressure is on for Mackenzie / Kenzie Cox in the world of motorcycle racing especially she’s a daughter of a racing legend. For years, she trained hard to meet his father’s expectations and continue his legacy. She remained focus and doesn’t let her emotions take over when her perfectionist father makes her feel her efforts are not enough. It makes her uptight and cautious on everything she does. Aside from that, Cox Racing – their team – is suffering financially and barely holding on. She needs to win those races to attract sponsors and earn money. The last thing she wants is to be distracted by the sexy, charismatic, and hot racer of the rival team – Benneti Motorsports, Hayden Hayes. She met him on an illegal street race when her mechanic Nikki asked to come get her and needs an emergency cash. He was a popular, undefeated street racer. Being on a motorcycle team is a game changer for him to leave the illegal competition as per rules and not to damage his and the team’s reputation.
Mackenzie and Hayden shared an intense, sizzling chemistry that drawn them for each other. However, they are not allowed to associate with each other because of the team’s policy. It’s entertaining to see their rivalry because it brings out the tension which makes me more engrossed with the story. Undeniably, Mackenzie and Hayden race each other better. They become more carefree and competitive on the track, so they decided to secretly practice as it will help Mackenzie to save her team. As this arrangement goes on, they were able to get to know each other and the romance sparks more. It’s nice to see them get along really well despite of the hindrances, also their bad impressions with each other faded. The setting of this book is well described and it makes me feel like I’m in the world of motorcycle racing (which I don’t know much about) and just let the adrenaline rush take over.
Furious Rush is great kick-start for a new sports romance series. The chemistry between the characters is intense, sexy and full of angst. They challenge each other to bring out their best potentials and no one is going to hold them back. I’m looking forward what lies ahead for Mackenzie Cox and Hayden Hayes. With that ending, I’m so pumped for the upcoming books! Kudos to S.C. Stephens for this novel!
